When it comes to building up a bike, finding the right pedal is one of the most difficult tasks. Depending on the frame and bike design, there is need for something that fits, looks good and also works well. A bike for the daily commute needs to be durable and light. While commuting most people don’t want to wear cleats and cycling shoes, with sneakers or leather shoes it’s difficult to find a solution that doesn’t damage the shoes but still performs well.
Our friends from schindelhauer developed a pedal that is exactly what a lot people where searching for.
It’s bridging the gap between classic road pedals and large platform pedals. A sleek and modern design with a flat surface and super low profile.
Made from premium high-strength aluminium, with reduced dimensions to save weight. Instead of the usual pins and small contact area on normal pedals, the schindelhauer “Urban Pedale” uses a flat top with 3M grip tape to secure the shoe on the pedal. This prevents the shoes from damage, but also secures them well while riding.
The schindelhauer “Urban Pedal” works perfect with our AURORA Velcro Straps V2, it seems that these pedals were designed just for them.
Together this combination offers a safe and comfortable stand and all around perfectly distributed force.
– CNC machined high-strength aluminium
– sealed industrial bearing combined with a plain bearing
– CrMo steel axles
– durable 3M premium grip tape
– weight: 300 g/pair
– available in black and silver
You can order your pair of schindelhauer “Urban Pedals” without or with our recommended AURORA Velcro Straps V2.
This is David Pili. He lives and rides in Geneva / Switzerland.
He is 26 years old and rides fixed freestyle for more than two years.
With his brother Laurent Pili and Pepy Todesky they created the Shred Crew back in 2011. They gained a lot attention since then and were featured in several publications.
David got a old school style, he loves analogue photography and this is visible with his recent edit. With his bike he went to New York City for some month and brought back this video.
I’m really happy to support him with AURORA, i’m sure there is much more to come. So if you see him or the other Shred Crew guys around your spot get in touch with them and have great session!

One year ago, two close friends of mine finally opened their own store called “Reverie“.
They had a great year and gained a lot attention and positive feedback with their concept.
Besides a nice selection of brands you just rarely find in german shops, they’ve also managed to keep it down to earth and really friendly. It’s always great to see happy customers around the store who just feel good visiting, talking or chilling there.
We often talked about a collaboration and I thought it would be great to have something to celebrate their first year. So I started the collaboration on my own as a suprise.
On the last saturday they celebrated their birthday with close friends and customers. With DJ, cake and drinks it was a nice event and a good opportunity to finally reveal this collaboration!
The result is a highly limited and upgraded edition of the AURORA Compact Messenger Bag. Along all the other features I added a stabilizer belt, a custom Logo patch attached with velcro and also a additional layer of 1100D Cordura for the bottom.
I only made 10 of them.
To complete the look I also added a entirely new AURORA Hooded Zipper with a custom Logo patch, also limited to 10 pieces. This zipper is the first AURORA cut & sew piece.
Both items are only available at the REVERIE store in Münster / Germany or on request.
I’m really proud to finally reveal the first AURORA // Quickstrike release.

the Olympic Games are over and it was a great event. Though I sadly couldn’t be in London and attend the events, I watched Olympia over Streams and TV as often as possible.
The good people in Great Britain did a great job and so did all the athletes.
As some of you might have noticed in KEIRIN version) for a long time now and achieved several medals in other competitions, but the Olympic Games are hard to top.
So to make it short. The Olympic Games were really successful, especially the Olympic Track Cycling Events and I feel proud to be a (really) small part of it. Kristina Vogel and Miriam Welte won the Gold Medal in the Women’s Team Sprint event. Kristina also made it to the 4th place in the Women’s Sprint.
Maximilian Levy won the Bronze Medal with Rene Enders and Robert Förstermann in the Men’s Team Sprint. But this wasn’t all, the most-anticipaded event was the Men’s Keirin.
Maxmilian Levy was focused and performed great in all Keirin races, for some seconds in the last round of the final he even overtook Sir Chris Hoy. But in the end Sir Chris Hoy could set free some extra power and got back the first place. It was a stunning race. Maxmilian Levy won the Silver Medal.
Hats off to the German Team and thank you for using and trusting the AURORA straps!

so it’s summer (kind of at least) and it’s time for hanging around with boys and girls, riding bikes and boards, traveling, enjoying bbqs and beer and much more. I love this stuff and I bet you do aswell.
A lot people use Instagram and so I thought this could be a fun thing for AURORA.
Why not sharing your great AURORA moments? This means, when you got something related and fitting to AURORA or just a eyecandy from your recent ride or roadtrip for example. I bet other AURORA fans would like to see it aswell – with using the AURORA hashtag #auroracollective, you can directly share your moment on the AURORA facebook page. I’m really curious about your impressions…
Maybe I will choose one great picture every once in a while and provide the creator with a suprise.
So keep the quality top-notch and have fun checking out the pictures.
